Mixing It Up Behind the Bar

Guest Bartender 8.26.16 (2)Last Friday we hosted our ever-popular Guest Bartender Night.  We first introduced Guest Bartender last year- and it was a hit!  It’s an evening in which we invite two brave Wexford members to hop behind the bar (with support from our knowledgeable bar backs!) and serve their neighbors and friends, with all tips going to a good cause. Interested members throw their hat into the ring and their names are selected at random.

This time Cindy Creamer and Josh Johnson were the two lucky members selected!  They chose the theme, Yacht Rock, and the specialty drinks, Smooth Operator and Lido Cosmo.  Everyone had a blast – patrons and bartenders alike!

Wexford Foundation Update

2The Wexford Plantation Charitable Foundation and Aerial Adventure Hilton Head recently joined forces and raised $10,000 to support local charities as a part of the 2nd annual “Send A Hero” campaign. By selling certificates to local residents, Wexford Foundation enabled 100 members of the HHI Fire Rescue and 100 guests to enjoy Aerial Adventure’s 6 challenge courses followed by lunch at Up the Creek Pub & Grill next door. Roger Freedman, owner of Aerial Adenture HH, donated $10,000 in certificates plus their lunches, in support of the wonderful work both the Foundation and the Fire Rescue do.

Pizza Party

Last week we hosted a children’s cooking class, Fresh Pizza from the Garden, with our Executive Chef Frank Copeland. The event was a huge success, filling up quickly with 12 Wexford children.

The children started in the Wexford kitchen (adorned in their chef’s hats!) where they worked alongside Chef Frank, rolling out their dough, saucing their pizzas and dressing them with all the toppings they love, consisting of fresh herbs and vegetables from Wexford’s garden. While the pizzas were baking, the children then helped replenish the garden, by each planting their very own herb or vegetable. The plants were labeled with the children’s name so they can continue to watch as their plants grows.

This was an unforgettable experience for our children and we look forward to hosting more children’s cooking classes in the near future – so stay tuned!

Wexford’s PGA Junior League

Hilton Head area PGA Junior Leagues garnered some national attention this week, as Harrison Mancill (representing the Country Club of Hilton Head) and John Berrigan (representing Wexford Plantation, coached by our very own James Scales!) both hit a hole-in-one last Friday on the SAME hole in the Junior League final match at the Country Club of Hilton Head. The two boys, ages 13 and 10, had back-to-back holes in one on the 89-yard, par-3 fifth hole.

According to the National Hole in One Registry, the odds of two players from the same foursome acing the same hole are 17 million to one.

Not only did these two players receive recognition locally in the Island Packet, the story was also picked up by the PGA AND the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive. Congratulations to both players!
